Reviews for A Stranger in an Unholy Land

God damn this story is amazing...

GAH! I just can't...stop...reading!
Arafell chapter 17 . 2/13/2014
The quintessential story for AU travelling Harry's suspected of being Death Eaters. As this is the longest story of the genre, complete, and interesting enough to hold my attention till the end, I think it might be the best one I've read.

That fight with Voldemort was extremely satisfying. That's gotta be my favorite way for him to die - lots of irony in the squib act, getting beheaded by the sword of Godric Gryffindor. Normally I don't like epic battles, but the cohesiveness and generally excellent flow of the narrative made it work. Giving him the medal was kind of interesting as well, though I doubt it's registered. Be kind of hard for the PM to explain that ones reasoning, eh?

On to the next story! Curse evil cliffhangers!

The Wayland Smith chapter 17 . 1/6/2014
Lovely story. It is nine circles of hell though in Dante, and there have been aproximately 1350 Victoria cross medals awarded, though only 14 since the Second World War. Finally, I thought at first that the continual use of 'myself' might be a character trait of Harry perhaps, but since it is universally used I have to assume that it is not. In most of the cases where you use it 'I' would be better, a reflexive pronoun is somewhat cumbersome. Finally the word is Divine, not Devine.

Criticisms aside, and they really are just tiny nitpickings, this is an exceptional story and I hope that you will one day continue with 'A Stranger in the Promised Land'.
The Wayland Smith chapter 11 . 1/6/2014
Well, I've finally got around to reviewing, mainly because I just want to say that I have a really bad feeling about what's about to happen next. Still on the actually quality of the story I'm very impressed. I came across it while doing a quick search for the most highly recommended fanfiction out there and while I can't entirely agree it is a very good story. I think you meant Milton's Paradise Lost earlier in the chapter and Tolstoy's War and Peace, but everyone makes little errors when writing. The only complaint I'd really level against this story is that allowing Harry to break the rules when it comes to animagi is somewhat cliche, but on the other hand we are most of the way through the story and it hasn't given him an outrageous advantage (although the coming advantage is obvious I suppose). I look forward to reading on and I am particularly hooked by the inevitable question of Harry leaving.

Overall I would give this story, so far an 7.5/10 or perhaps 8/10, though since I tend to think anything can be improved that suggests that this is better still. To anyone reading the reviews, I seriously advise you to try this story, it is well worth the read.

Honestly, that was a two against two fight, and harry and Sirius had the element of surprise. They just had to choose their target, one stunning spell, and that's it! But noooooo! Let's disarm Bella, discuss with her, and wait for the Black Watch to come outnumber us and screw our plans. Maybe next, if we are lucky we'll go and have tea with good ol' Voldie. Your story is good but their lack of thought is frustrating.

I absolutely loved this fic :) it kept me hooked the whole way through, for the best part of 3 days. It takes a very good writer with a great story idea to keep me dedicated to a fic as much as this has..i bow to you're greatness. ;)

Haha wow, did Harry REALLY think that the pigs wouldn't fire on unarmed students? Even modern "democracies" have a reputation of police brutality against peaceful protesters, and here he is expecting a fascist dictatorship to be merciful! I bet he thinks that the public will be on his side and be outraged at the actions of the government, when really, he should know better. Rarely do the masses ever side with the few who dare rebel against authority when the media is just a propaganda machine for the corrupt State.

SHE DID NOT DELIBERATELY SPILL THE COFFEE ON HERSELF! She ended up with second degree burns and had to go to the hospital for SKIN GRAFTS! You can't POSSIBLY believe she did that on purpose! She ordered that coffee from the drive through and accidentally dumped it on herself, and not only that, but there were over a dozen cases of OTHER people receiving similar injuries. McDonald's deserved to get sued for serving boiling hot coffee to people in cars - any decent coffee place would know that there are regulations about how hot coffee is allowed to be served.

McDonald's invented that stupid lie so that people like YOU would believe that she was just an attention seeking liar, and then the story travels by word of mouth until everyone forgets that a WOMAN HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL FOR SKIN GRAFTS! Stop spreading this crap, because it pisses me off to no end that people blindly accept the word of a soulless corporation over the word of a burn victim. Jesus.

Honestly, you're a Harry Potter fan! You should know better than to blindly trust the media circus.
